Festival Prospettiva Danza Teatro 2019
Prospettiva Danza Teatro it’s a twenty years old experience of art, culture and social communication through international choreography in the wonderful italian town of Padua
During the years it has become more and more pervasive, involving cultural realities working all year long in the town, invading squares and places of social gathering.
Prospettiva Danza Teatro is mostly an international choreography festival which hosts the Prospettiva Danza International Prize for young choreographers and collaborates with one of the most interesting monitoring centre on national choreography and dance: Network Anticorpi XL.
In the last few years the purpose of the Festival has changed. We wanted common people, citizens, to take part of the project, perform with the artists, live completly the experience and the emotions of dancing.
So instead of performing only in one or two locations in the city centre we tried to export the performances all around the town. We literally split up and Prospettiva Danza Teatro became urban dance performances, workshops, meetings even thanks to “Community Dance”, “La Città si muove” project and “Quartieri in danza”.
Prospettiva Danza Teatro has a mother: Laura Pulin, mastermind and longstanding artistic director of the Festival.
Every year the Artistic Director Laura Pulin chooses a subject to discuss with partners and supporters to create a fil rouge which connects all the activities, experiences and performances proposed to the audience.
It is a topic, a word, a concept who forces everybody intelligence, sensibility, perception to express what we feel. Dancers and choreographers transform their ideas in ballet sending a message to the audience: dancing, as form of art, is communication. Social gathering places of the town become protagonist of the performances: Piazza Duomo, MPX cinema, the Cultural Center Altinate San Gaetano Agorà, Diocesano Museum and the wonderful Teatro Comunale G. Verdi. The choreographic residences were hosted by Etic Bank and Torresino Theatre.
Prospettiva Danza Teatro would not have been possible without the plain support of the Municipality of Padua, the sponsorhip of Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Padova e Rovigo and CreativaMente Foundation, in collaboration with Circuito Regionale Arteven.
